    I haven't used it personally but I have two friends who swear by it. I honestly haven't looked into it myself, but from what they've told me it seems to be pretty strict with routine. Feeding to schedule, etc. They said their kids are both much more happy since enforcing it.

    In a healthy baby, I would recommend it. If you are comfortable with it and it suits your boy (it doesn't work for all babies).

    Get ready though for it to be completely bagged out by many and get told its cruel to use her methods, she's evil, isn't experienced to give advice etc etc, but.

    All I can say is try it, you will soon know if it works for your family or not.

    Good luck!

    It's controversial!!
    I think if it works for you then use it.
    I read the book and I applied some things and disregarded others. A routine can be good for some people. I used it to get an idea of what times where good to put bubs to bed and how many sleeps are needed for different ages.
    A lot didn't work for me including the 7-7 sleep it never ever worked but I have stuck to the 7pm bed time just because it works for us. Sometimes DS wakes at 5am sometimes at 8am and everywhere in between.

    It doesn't align with our parenting methodology. We would never consider following any of her recommendations.

    I haven't read the book, but based on observations of friends who have done it I just find the whole concept of scheduling an infant's sleep and feeds so bizarre. We tried to encourage DS into a loose pattern of naps, but this was based around what he was already doing.

    I personally would never use it Some of the recommendations are dangerous and many are damaging IMO, based on what I have read about not being responsive in your parenting.

    This. It goes against every instinctive bone in my body and imo is dangerous advice on several levels.
